What are wetlands ?
The general term "wetlands" describe a variety of ecosystems, including forest swamps, fresh and salt-water marshes, fens, and bogs and wet meadows. Wetlands are transitional areas between open water and dry land, making them unique habitats for a variety of fish and wildlife. Wetlands that are commonly found along rivers, streams, brooks, ponds, lakes and the ocean are easy for most people to recognize in this format.

Wetlands also occur where water is found at or near the ground surface, or in places where the ground is covered by shallow water ranging from a few inches to several feet.

Wetlands are not necessarily wet all year - some are known to be dry during certain seasons, especially late summer, For this reason, the casual observer may not recognize or correctly identify wetlands.

Wetland Regulations and you.
A number of federal, state and local wetland regulations apply to activities conducted in wetlands. In the case of state and local wetland regulations, a "buffer zone" can extend for a distance of up to 100 feet up-gradient. In both cases a permit is required for activities in either the wetlands or the buffer zone.

Failure to comply with the wetland regulations could mean a substantial penalty or other sanctions.
